Dr. Laurie Mintz is a sexuality therapist and professor at The University of Florida, where she teaches the Psychology of Human Sexuality. Her latest book, the sex-positive Becoming Cliterate: Why Orgasm Equality Matters and How to Get It, focuses on female sexual pleasure. Mintz has authored more than fifty research articles in academic journals, as well as A Tired Woman’s Guide to Passionate Sex

We talk about the fact we have been thinking about sex all wrong. Mainstream media, movies, and porn have taught us that sex = penis + vagina, and everything else is just secondary. Standard penetration is how men most reliably achieve orgasm. The problem is, women don’t orgasm this way. Yup it’s that podcast and it’s the best!! You will definitely learn something. We did.
